Question Got a call from town east ford yesterday.

And the guy on the phone said that they were looking for used Mustang GTs that would sell good in their used car lot because they are hot items right now. He wanted to apraise my car and see about getting me into an 03 GT or something with the same or lower payments. What do ya'll guys think? Im kinda thinking "NO".

How much longer do you have to pay on yours?

I wonder, since my '95 is paid for will they trade straight up for an '03.....

I am not sure you would really be gaining anything by doing it. Except having payments longer then 3 to 4 yrs.

Guys, if you're not getting an 03 Cobra why get the same car?


Just pay off the one you have. You'll be happier, you already have 1 or 2 years under your belt, just pay it off.

Ok,,,, well

Well, went in there and they looked at my car and did all the inspection stuff and I saw a 02 Black GT I liked. I owe still like 15,900 on my car, and here is what the guy told me first. They would give me $10K for my car and then mark down the 02 GT from 24K to 21K. Then from my payments being $345 a month now to $630 a month. I was like your CRAZY!!!!! Then, I am trying to leave and you know how they always want to work a deal. They said they could offer me more around 14K for my car and if I put $500 down, then they could get my payments down to $400 a month. I was like, well I will have to think about it (Thinking in my mind I'll just keep my car.) I mean I would just have to start over on my mods, plus pay longer period on the new car, but hey, If they'll do an exchange on a 03 cobra I'll be their huckleberry.

Keep your car Lance. There is nothing wrong with it, except maybe the color.

Definitely keep your car. If they want it that bad, they'll work a deal for the same or lower payments, with full trade in. But if they're going to try and swindle a lower trade, and make you pay more, screw 'em!

You on a lease, or own? Now that I've got almost 3 years payments on my car, I'm about to refinance my lease, get a better APR, and hopefully lower payments to boot. Not sure if you can do something like that if you're paying to own, but might be worth looking into.
